One of our key priorities is to build the best team possible, and I have no doubt that Brenton’s  extensive experience in trade and working capital finance will be invaluable to us as we scale our supply chain finance product – our biggest differentiator in the marketplace.

Booth added: “I am excited to be joining Beacon as it continues on its rapid growth trajectory. My focus is using technology and data to inform the design and delivery of new client experiences and business solutions in the areas of supply chain finance and logistics, and I am very much looking forward to helping Beacon become a leader in these areas.”
